Sato has averages of 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 61 career EuroCup games, all for Valencia except his 14 games with Montepaschi Siena in 2006-07. With Siena, Panathinaikos Athens, Fenerbahce Istanbul and Valencia, he has played 135 EuroLeague games in seven seasons, putting up 9.4 points and 4.5 rebounds on average. He won the 2011 EuroLeague title as a full-time starter with Panathinaikos.
